Overwatch 2: Heroes Ascendantis now available! I was thrilled to contribute a Hanzo short story to this anthology, “Where Honor Lives.” Like the game, writing it was a team effort with the talented editorial, narrative, and lore folks at Blizzard Entertainment. I love how it turned out and I hope you do too. Please pick it up at your local book or comic shop or online.

Experience the story of Overwatch 2 from a multiple points of view in this star-studded short story collection, featuring eight tales from award-winning and bestselling authors.

As Null Sector’s global assault brings the world to its knees, millions of voices cry out amid the devastation . . . and heroes around the world are answering the call.

  • Lyndsay Ely brings heartrending clarity to Ashe and B.O.B.’s pre-Crisis history.
  • As Null Sector drop pods rain down on Tokyo, Hanzo hears the ghost of his father—and meets with a familiar face—in an electrifying tale by E.C. Myers.
  • Corinne Duyvis and Sangu Mandanna trace Symmetra’s travels abroad to retrieve a Vishkar asset . . . and an old friend.
  • Mohale Mashigo lends fresh perspective to Ana and Jack’s relationship as they weave through a broken Istanbul to meet with an informant, one who claims to have knowledge of what brought down Overwatch all those years ago.

These stories and more illuminate the darkest corners of the Null Sector chaos, in the crucible where choices are made and heroes are forged. From the streets of Numbani to the alleys of Junkertown, the highest floors of Lijiang Tower to the stars themselves, don’t miss this exploration of the battles fought all around the globe. This perfect companion read to Overwatch 2’s main story includes tales from award-winning, bestselling science fiction and fantasy authors as well as Blizzard’s stellar narrative designers and cinematic writers. Complete with illustration by Kevin Hong, Hannah Templer, and more, this incredible anthology brings new focus to Overwatch’s universe, and shows that—even in its most uncertain times—the future is still worth fighting for.
